Claims Gorsuch did not acquit himself well and did not impress the Democratic caucus.

Watch for the big mushroom cloud.

    What a giant waste of time. Its all so disingenuous. You don't want to vote for the guy? Then don't.

    Is this because they feel the nomination was stolen?

    Like Sheb said, this is not the hill to die on. I thought ol' Chuck would be an upgrade from Harry but so far I'm not impressed.

    "Nowhere in that document [the Constitution] does it say the Senate has a duty to give presidential nominees a vote." - Harry Reid.

    Karma is such a ****

    Didn't that nominee get a vote?
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I'm not sure there was a nominee. I think he was just spouting a hypothetical.

    Always better to keep your mouth closed...unless your anonymous on the internet, of course.

    It is not karma unless the Democrats actually refused a president the opportunity to present a candidate before the Senate. Words matter.

    Who put you in charge of defining Karma?

    The Dali Llama. Or was it the Dali Alpaca? I always mix those two up.

    He found for both Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor. Obviously a misogynist.

    Is he right, is the better question I believe.

    yes.

    Not that it matters, since this is all politics.

    By the way, the quote about contraceptive use as the "wrongdoing of others" is, not surprisingly, taken completely out of context. The context is that he was referring to the use of contraceptives that could terminate pregnancy, as being seen as wrongful by religious Catholics.

    On the question of whether the contraceptives actually terminate pregnancy, he wrote it wasn't the job of the courts to delve into religious beliefs.

    This is bad, but not nearly as dishonest as the characterization of his opinion in the trucker case. That's just a flat-out smear job.

    After careful perusal of the Constitution I find that the Federal Courts have no actual job defined therein and therefore should be abolished, along with the EPA and other agencies and entities that are obstacles to Dickensian capitalism, thus contributing to the noble battle to Make America Great Again.
    The GOP big tent now is the size of a pup tent, its floor splattered with guano.

    I appreciate your use of "perusal" here, used as God intended. Now if I could only get people to stop saying "disinterested" when they mean "uninterested."

    That one doesn't bother me for some reason.

    Pacifically because it means the opposite of it's intensive purpose.
